RFK Must Die: The Assassination of Bobby Kennedy
The film is an expansion of a BBC broadcast exploring the alleged presence of CIA operatives at the Ambassador the night of the assassination, one of whom confessed to involvement in the tragic events that night. O'Sullivan believes the CIA targeted Kennedy because of his role in the Bay of Pigs invasion, his pledge to end the war in Vietnam, and his vow to reopen the investigation into the murder of his brother if he became President. Though Sirhan Sirhan was arrested, tried, and convicted for the RFK killing and is now serving a life sentence for murder, he still maintains that he has no recollection of the shooting and his easy susceptibility to hypnosis has led to speculation that he may have been a programmed "Manchurian Candidate". For those saturated with official government cover-ups, the film is a frightening revelation. For a new generation too young to remember 1968 and too idealistic to think the worst about government complicity, it may be an eye opener.
